The name Rolling Hills isn't a typical catchy title for a subdivision, it's actually exactly what you will find on your approach to these beautiful estate homes. The signature lawns and towering trees are perched perfectly around the homes to create an idyllic feeling of prestige and privacy. Lot sizes typically are anywhere from 3 to 8 acres in size, each with a unique combination of natural land and man made living spaces. With the city having grown south at such a rapid pace over the past three decades, amenities galore exist now within a few minutes drive into town.
Some of the most inspired estate architecture in the area exists in Rolling Hills Estates. Unlike other prestigious subdivisions, it is difficult to say that Rolling Hills has its own particular flavour. An eclectic mix of timber, stone, brick, and stucco adorn exteriors, while soaring modern roof pitches blended with traditional facades help to emphasize the feeling of true luxury customization. Outdoor living spaces are typically a major asset to any home in the area. Pools, tennis courts, walking trails and large grassed family spaces all have a major presence in the area.
If the ultimate goal is a blend between luxury estate living and city convenience, you truly can not beat the best of both worlds provided at Rolling Hills Estates. The natural turn over from original owners to today’s younger families is happening now, although properties are rare to public market.
